6:12pm
rapidly rising stock price, a very good day for these guys. you get the feeling the champagne tasted a little better on a day when many of their stock options turned into real money. >> we have about 170 people. the impact that each and everyone of our employees make for us to achieve this milestone. i am very proud of our employees. >> and those employees doing well today. model n shared almost 30% higher than the initial ipo price. its performance bodes well for other companies set to go public soon. oracle has been public for a long time. today not a high point. the software giant's earning report came in lower than expected. shares dropped by about 8%. san francisco may soon tear down freeway to help tech

6:14pm
business if the information is requested. the ruling made last week is in response to an activist lawsuit. the activist sued the city in 2009 over its refusal to disclose officials personal electronic communications. the attorney says the decision could be problematic on practical and privacy grounds. it is unclear whether or not san jose will appeal the decision. aclu is fighting to make sure texts and e-mails stay private. it would stop warrantless searches of cell phones after someone is arrested. cell phones contain as much information as an office and police shouldn't have access to phone numbers and conversations without good reason. it stemmed from a case when an officer read the text out loud in front of others. it is the first suit of its kind in the state. california's constitution has a strong guarantee of privacy and
6:15pm
freedom. the woman behind the controversial ads posted is condemning city leaders for their public stand against the ads. the ads feature quotes from osama bin laden and others associating the words jihad with violent extremism. city leaders say it is unfair to characterize an entire religion as violent. where was the city when the propalestinian group ran its own hateful ads. >> i think the san francisco official reaction to our ads is obscene and absurd. they wouldn't condemn the hateful statements on the air even when specifically asked to do so. they are only condemning me for drawing attention to those statements as if this problem will go away if we ignore it.
6:16pm
>> because of previous first amendment court rulings they must roll the ad. an early morning blaze is still under investigation tonight. this stubborn fire took hours to contain. the flames destroyed two homes. falling power lines made it hard for firefighters to bring the fire under control. from berlin to mountain view a piece of world history is about to get a bigger platform. two large pieces of the berlin wall will soon be in front of the library. they are currently at an office park. there are portions of the wall on display in other parts of the country but this is the only one in the bay area. no word on when the slabs will be moved. it was certainly gloomy outside but things are looking up if you like the sunshine. >> definitely as we head towards this weekend we will have
6:17pm
warming changes. today the on shore flow with us and the cloud cover and the rain did help keep temperatures cooler. 63 for the high. warmer in the south bay with 68 in san jose and 72. what you do want to know if you are headed out from the south bay up to oakland and san francisco and traveling from the north bay across the golden gate bridge there will be areas of drizzle tonight mainly right near the bay. let's illustrate this picture here. you can see from emeryville it is what you cannot see. that is san francisco skyline shrouded in the cloud cover and completely fogged in at this hour. so we are looking at that drizzle and slick roadways. it will change quickly if you are headed up to the northern peninsula. tomorrow morning we are going to find ground fog developing down near san jose that may produce drizzle for the morning commute. as we head throughout the morning hours it will gradually and slowly start to push out and
6:18pm
eventually by the afternoon on thursday we will get sunshine in here and temperatures will also go a little bit warmer. let's look at this another way. you can see in the forecast starting with conditions in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees. noon mid to upper 50s and by the afternoon hour temperatures going up into the 60s for the interior valleys with sunshine returning. sunny here for friday and also saturday. temperatures warming up into the low and mid 70s for this first weekend of spring. and eventually in that seven day forecast we will be tracking rain. oh, by the way with the latest storm four to seven inches of sierra snow up here at kirkwood. we haven't had a lot the ski resorts are doing what they can to keep up with the snowfall. you can track for forecast anytime at nbcbayarea.com. it is officially spring and that could be bad news for allergy sufferrors.

6:22pm
to prison. the prison realignment took effect 18 months ago. just when it looks like democrats had the latino vote to themselves republicans may have a challenge. republicans and latinos had not had an alliance at all. >> until now it has been bleak to put it kindly and here is why. latinos represent 38% of the population in california. 28% of the electorate in the last year. 80% of latinos in california supported barack obama and other democratic candidates last year. that is the most lop sided turnout on record. so simply put no group was as helpful to the democrats in 2012 as latinos. >> republicans have been doing a
6:23pm
lot of talk about quoting latinos. >> first soul searching and then action maybe. we say that finally because republicans have been discussing this lost opportunity since 2008 only to see only a worse outcome in 2012. now republicans are organizing to get back some of that vote. in california republicans have created something called grow elect. it is a new political action committee dedicated to identifying and cultivating latino candidates ranging from school board elections to maral campaigns. >> and the republicans are hoping for? >> to get back in theic politic game. just last week helped elect three latinos, races that were small, city council types. for the three winners it is the

america raising more eyebrows. >> the organization is asking members about allowing gays into the scouts. nbc bay area is live at the san jose office. i understand you tried to get an explanation. >> reporter: this office behind me is not answering questions and is referring us to the corporate head quarters. i did get the survey from one parent here and she said it defeats the purpose of collecting feedback. you will often see him walking into city hall, a leadership role he attribiates to his years as a boy scout. >> it is a tremendous opportunity for boys that recommend anyone having the opportunity to do. >> reporter: gonzalez is gay, a secret he kept from the scouts and is president of a political action group. we showed him the survey about
6:28pm
the scouts gay policy being sent to scout families and alumni. one reads a gay male troop leader along with another adult leader is taking a group of boys on a camping trip, is it acceptable or unacceptable for the gay adult leader to take adolescent boys on an overnight camping trip? >> a gay leader absolutely can lead a group of kids. the question talking about going away on a camping trip could possibly be used to instill fear where it is really not the case. >> reporter: we showed the survey to a parent whose child will be of scouting age soon. >> i can see how the questions seem loaded. >> reporter: the boy scouts encourages people to log on to its website to learn more about the process. the scouts said bsa authorized its commits, representative of

dayton and getting bounced before a lot of fans had filled out their brackets. they got drilled 65-54. cal had just 25 points with nine minutes to go in the game. as they get set for a more traditional first round game don't think they have forgotten last year's experience. >> i think everybody's pretty aware that we were not prepared mentally. i think they were disappointed. we played for the conference championship and didn't win it. we were roith there for the conference championship and then we get the play in game. i think mentally we were not prepared for that. >> we are still conscious about what that feeling felt like last year in that locker room, especially with that loss. you don't want to send any teammate out like that. we are very conscious of putting out our best effort and being motivated to keep wanting to
6:51pm

6:52pm
